Christafari is comprised of men and women from various continents, countries, and cultures who share a love for reggae music and passion for following Jesus to the ends of the earth.
Known as the first Christian Reggae band in America, Christafari was founded in 1989 by Pastor Mark Mohr. Raised in a Christian family, during his teens Mohr strayed from his spiritual upbringing and turned to drugs and alcohol, going as far as growing and even dealing marijuana. After running away from home, living on the streets, and hitting rock-bottom, he had an undeniable encounter with God that drastically transformed his world. At 17, Mark re-committed his life to Christ and took what he now calls his “Freedom Step” out of addiction.
As trailblazers, Christafari is continually pioneering the genre of Gospel reggae in the U.S. and throughout the world. But the band is more than just musicians; they’re “musicianaries” (musical missionaries), spreading the message of hope and salvation globally to approximately 85 countries per year.
Concert begins at 6PM, Friday, August 27th, Calvary Chapel Greenmeadow, 266 Devils Foot Road, North Kingstown, RI.
Admission is FREE. Chairs available, or bring blankets to sit on the lawn.
